Hey El Moochadors. Here’s my latest project that I’ve working on. It’s a mock-cover design for a Star Wars book. I’m not sure if this falls under fan art or fan fiction…? Anyhow, since I already posted about this on my own personal site, I’m just going to copy and paste some of what I wrote there in here to save time. I will say though that the copy on the back cover was written by Ameer, or Numbers as you know him from the Atomic Moocast. He came up with an awesome back story for the image, and I thank him for it. I’m kind of thinking he needs to write more and flesh it out. Finish what you started dude!
About three weeks ago I had the opportunity to go work at in a studio up in Burbank. While I was there they showed me a way to paint in textures, highlights and shadows on to some CGI “assets” to create some really awesome images. Unfortunately since I’d never even tried anything like that (and also I wasn’t use to using a tablet), I wasn’t that great at it. Still when I got back home, I pulled my Bamboo out of the closet, dusted it off, and started practicing with it. Originally, when I found this Storm Trooper image on DeviantArt, I just planned to try and paint some battle damage into him. Later I decided to make a mock-book cover out of it.
All the images and textures I used can be found on DeviantArt, and I’ll list them below.
Anyhow, I’m not sure what else to say about it. It was a fun project, and I hope to do a few more like it.
